A photo of a man’s creative address for the delivery of a package is doing the rounds of social media and has been getting praise and laughs.
Instead of providing the complete postal address, the resident of Kota in Rajasthan wrote,”Mandir ke samne aate hi phone laga lena, mein aa jaunga” (Call me as soon as you reach the temple, I’ll come there).
